The Courthouse photographs on this site are by permission
of Geoff Winningham.

In 1975 Winningham accepted a commission to photograph eighteen county courthouses of Texas for a book on the county courthouses of the United States, a project funded by the Seagrams Company in celebration of the bicentennial anniversary of the country. The book that resulted from this project, Courthouse (Horizon Press, 1976), is now regarded as a classic architectural study. Winningham has continued to photograph courthouses across Texas and now has images of over sixty buildings. A set of the original photographs is now archived in the Library of Congress.
